principles of good government: liberty, people and politics." it's written by former new mexico governor gary johnson, and he is also the libertarian party nominee for president in 2012. governor johnson, when and why did you leave the republican party and become a libertarian? >> guest: well, you know, i've probably been a libertarian my entire life, so this is kind of coming out of the closet. [laughter] and i don't think i'm unlike most americans. i think there are a hot more americans in this country that declare themselves libertarian as opposed to voting libertarian. so, you know, the pitch that i'm trying to make right now is vote libertarian with me just this one time. give me a shot at changing things. and if it doesn't work out, you can always return toty, and i'm going to argue that that's what we have right now. >> host: what are those seven principles of good government that you write about? >> guest: well, one is being reality-based, just find out what's what, base your decisions on that, make sure everybody that knows, that should know what you doing knows what you're doing, so

are recent arrivals, not necessarily for a-porn, but having migrated from california to new mexico because the drop of jobs opportunity if the past decade or so. that is not unlike the white population, too. it is very hard to find needed arizonans. a lot of people there are transplants from elsewhere. that explained a lot as to why the latino voters are still the sleeping giant in arizona. we saw them surging into mexico and colorado and nevada, but in arizona this year still asleep, and some people ask why, in part, because they're not established the roots. what percentage of the population, give us a sense of the percentage of the population, the growth rate, the expansion. >> in arizona, approximately one-third of the population are hispanic background. but when we take into consideration the qualifications to be able to vote, the voting age population, only 25 percent that are eligible to vote, or in terms of being over 18. of the population, one-third are disqualified from participating in elections because of their citizenship status. that twiddles the number down dramatically. onl

note and atlantic magazine. steve is also a former policy adviser for new mexico senator jeff bingaman. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you rachel. >> am i being naive to think this was going to pass? >> a lot of people thought it was going to pass. of all the treaties, this would be the easiest to pass. there were other treaties pending. this is about people in need and it didn't. this is a branch of the gop that did you want represent all republicans, but it's the obnoxious nationalist wing that really resents any international deal making. there's a lot of worry not just about people with disabilities, but all the other treaties that position the united states and show that it can be the primary sculptor of global affairs, and we're defecting from that as of today's vote. >> so 126 countries ratifying this, but us, not ratifying it. particularly when it's modeled on our law. that takes us out of a global leadership role? >> it leaves a void that the united states is walking away from the responsibility of primary leadership in the world of sculpting global affairs in t
states of nevada, colorado, new mexico, even florida, he lost those states because he thought he could do an about face which he couldn't. >> richard? >> i'm tempted to go with the obvious here. the obvious would be 47%. the obvious would be being honest in front of a bunch of wealthy donors, when you're mitt romney, and thinking no one would pay any attention. how many times had he given that speech? and then that one was recorded? but i'm not going to be obvious because it is the revvies. i'm going to go with worst political move of the year? everything carl rove spent his money on. >> oh, that's good. >> you're stealing my thunder. >> i could have gonl for the wealthy, elderly. but, you know, there are elderly and they have so much money, who cares. carl rove is the one, the supposed architect, the supposed genius. >> so exposed in this election. >> i agree. without tipping my hand, i have a special recognition for carl rove coming up. i think the worst political move of the year was the republicans' engineering on aggressive voter suppression. i think they angered and energized voters

's shocking and, again, like i have lived in new york and california most of my life. i was raised in new mexico and certainly a lot of people there still do feel that way and i do forget there are so many parts of our nation that feel that way and i think a lot of it is really lack of knowledge. >> something extraordinary happened on tuesday as voters in colorado and washington state said yes to legalizing marijuana for recreational use. it's a stunning move. >> when you last did an interview with this show, larry king was the host. >> yeah. >> and you admitted to him halfway through that you were actually high at the time, you had infused yourself of some marijuana. so i've got to ask you the question, have you come similarly infused today? >> what's today? >> it can be any day you like. >> did you wake up this morning and have a quick, you know? >> i probably did, i probably did, if i remember. you know, that short term stuff. >> do you take a lot of it? >> i think some people have more tolerance, you know, for smoking pot than others and i know people that can take one hit and just go

this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her -- not abdicate hor or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- from thewing recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual
from albuquerque, new mexico. these are the numbers. if you are making $1,100 a month, i checked out social securityworks.com. over the courts of 20 years you get $28,600. >> that's how much you would be cut. >> by the chained cpi? >> yeah. >> bill: that's a lot of money. >> it's a lot of money. you know what? this is did be these are such hardship cuts. i think for the president to throw social security into a budget deal like this is despotism. i'm sorry. at least george bush when he wanted to privatize social security, he didn't try to weasel it through in a budget deal. i can't believe i am saying this about george bush but he opened a national dialogue and the nation rejected it. i don't think the president -- and by the way, nancy pelosi yesterday on andrea mitchell was saying she thought she had the votes for this. >> bill: i know. >> caller: i feel like i have been betrayed. >> bill: i do, too, jean. i think a lot of people feel like they have been betrayed. >> that's why i asked barbara lee and she said nancy hasn't talked to her but
